“Coach Buehler is an unsung hero who went above and beyond to help others over the years. He did it with dignity and without seeking publicity and notoriety."
Dick Vitale, ESPN
“Al Buehler defines the word ‘coach.’ He set a standard for all of us to follow.” Coach Mike Krzyzewski, 4-Time NCAA Championship Coach, Duke University
"There are a lot of great men and there are a lot of great coaches, but there are not a lot of great coaches that are great men. And Coach Buehler was definitely one of those." Carl Lewis, 9-Time Olympic Gold Medalist
"Al Buehler had the foresight to realize that women can be athletes too."
Joan Benoit Samuelson, Olympic Gold Medalist
"I think what made Coach Buehler stand out in the sport most over all these years is that he wasn't egotistical. He wasn't in the sport to promote Coach Buehler."
Mary Decker-Slaney, Olympian and 2-Time World Champion
"When I needed someone to be there, God sent an individual such as Al Buehler"
John Carlos, Olympic Bronze Medalist
"The tale of Al Buehler is bold and as inspiring as it is powerful. This documentary sings, showing how often there's no separating sports from American history and how that perfect harmony can lead to ground-breaking change. What makes Buehler such a fascinating character isn't how much he won on the track, but how he lived. And how he didn't allow the success to change him and instead used it to help change the lives of others. The only pity is, there's probably no one else like him."
